Teaching Dance As Art in Education
3.  Teaching Dance As Art in Education by Brenda Pugh McCutchen
The list author says:
  "Arranged as a textbook for undergraduates in a dance teacher education program, this new book gives a comprehensive overview of many facets of teaching dance in a K12 public school setting. One drawback is the heavy use of author-coined terminology and acronyms, which is confusing if you read selected chapters rather than going straight through. Still, a fabulous resource!"
